It had been nearly seven months since Marc Staal skated in a regular season game following his eye injury in March. But the defenseman made the most of his return, scoring the team's only goal on the power play in the second period in the Rangers' 4-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
After the game, Staal discussed defensive zone coverage, generating offense, the team's penalty trouble and more.
